The Asian Lantern Festival at the Pittsburgh Zoo Now through October 30th. This is just a sneak peek. Steve and I were headed to get gas and I was able to pull over to get a quick peek through the Zoo fence.
On my way home Saturday night. I’d just come from Uncle Frank’s. Moon rise over West Mifflin. I was at a stop sign.
I drove to the South Side to buy buttons for a sweater. I discovered that Clarissa Boutique and Parker Button moved to 4603 Butler Street in Lawrenceville. “Your Exclusive Bridal & Wedding Accessory Destination!”
Jean and Gretchen welcomed me and remembered the blog post from 2011- Button Button Whose Got the Button?
Ten years ago, Laura got her bridal veil from the boutique for her wedding. It is a lovely store.
Need a landmark to locate them? They are located next door to the French Bakery La Gourmandine.
How about that Capodimonte lamp? A perfect home for the family heirloom of Gretchen’s family with the romantic porcelain couple in the beautiful bridal boutique.
